The Peregrine family have continued to provide great entertainment in the last week. Notable moments include one of the adults taking a Pigeon over the shops in East Street in front of many shoppers, and lots of mini-stoops by both parents right around the Cathedral resulting in no reported captures. Yesterday an adult carrying prey was sighted heading into the north of the city at low altitude with two loudly squawking juveniles in hot pursuit. It seems that the parents are beginning to demonstrate their hunting technique to the youngsters.
One young bird amused watchers by electing to perch on the end of the white crane north of the Cathedral, where he or she continued to sit unpeturbed as the crane rotated as it went about its work.
